Normally this has been taken by people seeking to move to Australia long term and is a good place to stay while seeking work & permanent accommodation, or other times it is grandparents visiting their children and grandchildren.

Malabar is a coastal suburb situated around Long Bay. Malabar is mostly residential, but with large plots of land devoted to the Randwick Golf Course,and parks. A small group of shops is located at Prince Edward Street, close to the intersection with Anzac Parade.

Please note although there is an extra single bed (extra person $30) which can be made up in the living area, the apartment is not suitable for children under 5 due to stairs, and balcony access.
Apartment is fully self-contained. If guests want to use the bbq they are most welcome. Help yourselves to variety of herbs and fruit from the garden
Interaction with Guests
We live downstairs. Guests are welcome to knock on the interconnected at any time for information or a chat. Or guests can be completely private as they have their own entrance.
The neighbourhood is quiet as house is in a residential street. As the bay is quite small, there are never large crowds using the beach. The golf couse & club is very picturesque being on the ocean front. The ocean pool is very popular with guests and with ourselves as it is 5 minutes walk so no need to take anything but your towel and sunscreen.
Nearest drinking venues are the RSL club which also provides reasonably priced and varied meals. The golf club is more expensive but still good value.
Buses within 5 minute walk. No on site parking but plenty of free street parking. Taxi from the airport takes about 20 mins and costs $40-$50
Other Things to Note
If you are a golfer, apparently this is golfer heaven!
We are an easygoing couple and we can say the same for our guests. We expect you would treat the apartment as if you were in your own home and also smoking inside the apartment,
Wir hatten eine gute Zeit in der Wohnung. Hübsch eingerichtet, blitzsauber mit einer wunderschönen (website hidden) war alles da: Gewürze, Servietten, Tissues, wirklich alles. Die Umgebung ist sehr schön. Gepflegte Häuser, ein sauberer Strand, ein Kinderspielplatz. In der Nähe der Bushaltestelle hatten wir das beste Frühstück von ganz Sydney. Die Karten für den Bus haben wir sehr geschätzt.

Helen is a rockstar, I showed up early and she made sure the place was clean and tidy for me. Provided me with towels and clean linens. Felt like my mom was taking care of me : ) Location is gorgeous with a beautiful view of Malabar's bay area and within walking distance to a private beach with some charming nearby bistros.
Ask for Phil at the Heritage Garden for a delicious healthy meal with a coffee or head to Beach Cafe for some juice and take in the bay views.
Dit was onze vierde accommodatie tijdens onze wereldreis. Het was echt perfect. Een geweldige locatie en een prachtig uitzicht. Helen ontving ons heel hartelijk en stond altijd klaar om informatie te geven. De inrichting is heel smaakvol. Een volledig geouttileerde keuken en in de slaapkamer een heerlijk bed. Een auto om naar de stad te gaan is niet nodig. Tien minuten lopen en je vind een aantal buslijnen die je in ca 35 minuten naar de stad brengen. Echt een aanrader!
This is a wonderfully cosy and private apartment in a quiet street minutes from Malabar Beach and rock pool, itself a hidden gem. The view out to the coast is superb! The apartment had everything we needed. The hosts were very warm and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.
My boyfriend and I had an absolutely wonderful stay with Helen. She was very accomodating with times and provided a lot of information about the area. The place is gorgeous and feels like home. It has everything you could need, Helen even bought us breakfast food. The view is fantastic, a great getaway. Highly recommended.
Can't say enough good things about Helen and this gorgeous apartment. I spent 2 days there and would've preferred to stay longer. The apartment is ideally located in a quiet residential area with plenty of on street parking. The view is amazing and it was a treat to spend the mornings and afternoons sitting there taking it in. There is a neat ocean pool a block away and a really nice coastal walk to Little Beach if you have an hour to go exploring. The apartment was clean, well appointed, and Helen was very helpful and nice. And for those that care, the wifi was very fast.

We are from Ireland, but have lived in Sydney for over 30 years. We enjoy travelling, theatre, movies, nature, walking, and meeting people. We are happy to help in any way we can, but you can be assured of total privacy if you just want to relax and do your own thing.
